  • Not sure we understand your question. Source media is different from a KBE.
  • Thank you. I got my answer. You have to create a new scripted install to choose new source media. You cannot change the source media once the install is created.

The source media you uploaded is for OS installs (scripted installs) not KBE booting.  The "source media" for a KBE is the WAIK or WADK on the tech station you upload the KBE from.

The KBE and Source Media are two separate items as one is used to boot the system into a Web based OS while the other is the out of box experiences (oobe) of the OS being installed that is uploaded to the K2000 appliance.

KBE's are created using the Media Manager/KBE Manipulator for a target system to load the web based OS so it can access and manipulate the hard drive on the target system. Once booted to the KACE deploy/capture menu you could then select a scripted install to be completed.

The scripted install uses the source media that is uploaded along with the unattend.xml file to install the OS onto the hard drive of the targeted system. Creating the unattend.xml can be completed using the Sysprep Creator Wizard and placing it into the c:\windows\system32\sysprep folder prior to running the sysprep command.

Hope this answers your questions.
